RIP George Tutko

We got the sad news today that the great recording engineer George Tutko passed.  George recorded Rod Stewart, Bob Seger, John Cougar Mellencamp, Duran Duran and many others.

Audio engineering is both a science and a craft, and George was one of the great craftsmen of the science.  If that’s your interest in life, throw out the autotune and the plugins and find one of these guys to learn from.

Here’s a voicemail that Rod Stewart and Jim Creagan left for George while he was ill.
